This picture was truely inspired by the tsunami in 2004. I was inspired to make this picture, because there was so much destruction and sadness in the world at this time and I wanted to show that. I also wanted to show that there was still hope in this world in this piece. By showing suttle glimps of flowers blooming in the background and the clouds clearing in the distance and a boat do demistrate safety and calm waters. I wanted to inspire people with this picture to feel what was going on and to also feel that if they have a little hope and faith that they can see the light out of destruction and eventually can restore what once may have been destroyed.
